Golf Betting System Reader Reviews

A large number of Golf Betting System readers use Betfair as part of their bookmaker portfolio – here’s what some of them had to say in our Betfair golf betting review with a specific slant on their golf betting odds, promotions and overall offering. For more bookmaker reviews click here.

The one obvious bonus with Betfair Sportsbook is the Cash Out option available on its golf markets, especially if you’re not up to speed with laying bets on the exchange. Generally I don’t find Betfair have the top prices so I rarely use their Sportsbook, but I would always recommend an account so there is always the option of using the exchange (it’s quite easy once you get used to it!) should you need it. I can’t score the Sportsbook too highly given the prices, but on the whole it’s a good website. Betfair golf betting review by TB. Rating: 3/5 (Sportsbook)

I’ve started placing more and more of my bets with Betfair. They go 7 or 8 places each-way on the PGA Tour most weeks, but I use them more and more for football as well as their odds always seem good. Betfair golf betting review by DW. Rating: 4/5 (Sportsbook)

Difficult to fault the exchange as it’s obviously the best out there. The odds on some players are huge compared to the normal bookmakers and you often see a player who’s 100/1 trading at 200 or 300 on Betfair. The liquidity on some of the extra markets isn’t great sometimes but on the overall winner it’s usually fine. I’ve used the sportsbook a couple of times too when there’s been extra places available and it seemed pretty good to me.” Betfair golf betting review by MW. Rating: 5/5 (Exchange), 4/5 (Sportsbook)

Betfair – very good, exchanges are great, haven’t tried the sportsbook much so not sure if free bets are available or money back promotions, will be trying a few other bookies to compare. Betfair golf betting review by AS. Rating: 5/5 (Exchange), 2/5 (Sportsbook)

I’ve started placing more and more of my bets with Betfair. They go 7 places each-way on the PGA Tour most weeks, but I use them more and more for football as well, as their odds always seem ridiculously good.” Betfair golf betting review by DW. Rating: 5/5 (Sportsbook)

The exchange offers most value than any other company in my opinion. Very good odds and odds out quickly usually on the Sunday beforehand. In terms of golf, the sportsbook lets the site down. Odds not as good as other sites and price usually doesn’t compete with other bookmakers.” Betfair golf betting review by JK. Rating: 5/5 (Exchange), 3.3/5 (Sportsbook)

Overall Rating 4/5 (9 reviews)

Betfair Sportsbook Golf Betting Coverage

Betfair Sportsbook covers every Major, PGA Tour and European Tour golf tournament across the season. Additional each-way places are now a weekly feature and their depth of additional markets such as Match Bets and Group Betting puts most of the competition in the shade.

Sharing their odds compiler team with Paddy Power, markets are out smartly on a Monday. The Paddy Power effect can be seen now with Betfair Sportsbook. During the opening period of 2017, Betfair Sportsbook were offering the standard 5 places each-way at 1/4 odds the place, but now Betfair Sportsbook offer the same each-way terms as Paddy Power. So expect 8 places each-way at 1/5 odds on full-field PGA Tour tournaments and 7 places each-way 1/5 odds on full-field European Tour events. 2019 also saw Betfair Sportsbook match the same each-way terms as Paddy Power across all 4 Major Championships with 10 places at 1/5 odds now well established.

Another huge advantage of using Betfair Sportsbook for golf bets is their Cash Out facility where you can close a bet during the tournament. This facility actually gives punters the opportunity to effectively trade during the action, but instead of using the Betfair Exchange, prices to close your bet are offered by the bookmaker. Alternatively of course being a Betfair member allows you to easily lay off bets on the Exchange from the same wallet or from bets you placed with another online bookmaker. For more on how the Exchange works read our golf trading article.

Punters used to fixed odds punting can often find laying a bet on Betfair exchange intimidating, so Cash Out makes it easy to close bets simply with 2 clicks. You can use Cash Out to access a popular way of making profit on golf, namely backing long-shots or fast starters pre-event and then locking in profit as their odds shorten during the tournament. In that way it’s more than possible to make a profit when a selection doesn’t even win or place, they just have to be in contention as the tournament develops.

Typical sportsbook markets: Overall Winner, Top 5, Top 10, Top 20, 1st Round Leader, Daily 2/3 Balls, Group Betting, Big Guns vs the Field, Tournament Match Bets, Top American/European/Rest of the World/ Asian.

Betfair Golf Betting Maximum Payout

The maximum payout is £100,000 across any golf bet made with Betfair Sportsbook. For more on maximum payouts visit www.maxpayout.co.uk.

Betfair In-Play Golf Betting

In-Play betting is available on PGA Tour and European Tour events. Of late Betfair Sportsbook have only been knocking a single place off their each-way terms when it comes to in-tournament betting right through to the start of Round 2. That is market leading. Traditionally you can bet on the Outright Market during each round, plus Top 5 and Top 10 finish markets.

Betfair Golf Each-Way Places

If you’re a regular golf punter or a relative newbie to the sport, our 2019 each-way place research covering Major Championship, European Tour and PGA Tour strokeplay tournaments is well worth a read here.

Betfair Sportsbook have run some terrific extended each-way offers across the Major Championships since their inception. That is now solidified into the fact that they offer market-leading places every week across the European Tour and PGA Tour, not just at that Major Championships. The Majors always offer a huge opportunity to snare outsiders who place at triple-digits and having the luxury of 10 places each-way at 1/5 odds for the place is an absolute no-brainer. So a Betfair Sportsbook account is well worthwhile for each-way punters.

Throw in the fact now that they offer 8 places each-way 1/5 odds and 7 places each-way 1/5 odds across the PGA Tour and European Tour when it comes to full-field tournaments and you have a Sportsbook, who are an absolute must-have account for golf punters.

For 2019, Betfair offered 10 places each-way, 1/5 odds at The Masters, US PGA Championship, US Open and the Open Championship – for further details read our Betfair 10 places each way page.
